KiSS RADiO, JACK 96.9, CityNews 1130 and Sportsnet 650 present FOOD BANK FRIDAY in an effort to raise important funds for accessible, healthy and sustainable food for many families as we head out of this pandemic.  

For over six years, Food Bank Friday has been a December tradition, before COVID, we were collecting on the corner of West Georgia and Granville in Downtown Vancouver, broadcasting live from dawn to dusk in support of and in partnership with the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Although we can’t be there in person this year and things look a little different, the Food Bank’s need for donations is very much the same.

Leading up to Friday, December 10th, and afterwards, please consider making a donation to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank to help support those who rely on the Food Bank for assistance and food support.

HELPING FLOOD VICTIMS & COMMUNITIES ACROSS BC

The GVFB is in close communication with all food banks in BC; whenever they need help, they’re ready to support them.  Your donation will go towards not only helping the GVFB it will spread across the province as needed.

WHAT DOES THE FOOD BANK URGENTLY NEED?

Non-perishable food items like Pasta, low sodium canned salmon, canned vegetables, pasta sauce in an unbreakable jar or can, whole-grain crackers, peanut butter, whole-grain cereal, boxed granola and cereal bars.

Other items: Diapers (Large sizes other than newborn)

MAKE YOUR DOLLAR GO EVEN FURTHER!

Thanks to a very generous anonymous donor, every dollar donated (online or emoji/text) before 6pm on December 10 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000!

This will more than quadruple the value of every dollar donated, as the GVFB’s buying power is currently just over $2.
